I can't try these in person since my local shops don't have any and if I order it, I must commit to buying it but I'm on a tight budget and need a bass, preferably Jazz. Sure, I'd love a Geddy Lee but I don't have the cash right now. I've read tons of positive reviews on the Vintage Mods and so my question is: does it feel as ****** as the Classic Vibe series (felt & looked like plastic to me)? is it eons away from a Geddy Lee (ok, give me **** for this question)? I'll be eBaying it regardless of what I get since my shops are overpriced and I don't want to buy new, and their used are still way overpriced. Ok, rip me to shreds for asking but I guess I'm desperate for a jazz bass and this may be the only price range I can swing for now, and I'm being a picky about looks too Guess you can't ask for everything, eh?
